Latest pretty purchases!

I have missed sharing these type of blogs posts with you guys… I wanted to share some of my latest pretty purchases! matalan-embroidered-blouseI was returning something the other day in Matalan when I spotted this beautiful embroidered jacket / blouse. I think it’s called a ‘jacket’ just because it doesn’t have buttons down the front, it’s open except for just a little clasp at the top, but I wear a little white cami top underneath it and wear this over the top as a pretty blouse. I absolutely love the flower detailing and I thought for £25.00 it was a bargain, the last one in my size and when I got it to the till it was only £18.50, even better… it was meant to be, obviously. Do you see how I justify my purchases to you and myself!matalan-embroidered-topI think it’s so lovely, perfect for summer with shorts or skinny jeans, but also beautiful in the autumn months with tan suede boots, black skinny  jeans and a leather jacket. What do you guys think?
If you don’t know already… I have a mini obsession with cactus things right now, whether they’re printed Pj’s, shirts, etc, so this little trinket dish caught my eye immediately! It’s from Sass & Belle via Asos and personally I thought it was a little bargain. Doesn’t it look cute on my bedside table?
Well, it is a trinket dish. River Island had 20% off the other day in-store so I bought these rose gold beauties. I have been trying to buy more accessories lately, as I think they really can make an outfit. I love rose gold, so I know these will be well loved. How stunning are thegemstone earrings?
I had seen a few bloggers post about these candles from B&M stores. They are supposed to be Bath & Body works dupes for just £2.99. Sadly this was the only scent left in my local store! Don’t get me wrong it’s gorgeous but I wanted to buy the others too, there was a few pumpkin scented ones I wanted to try. I will just have to keep looking, this does smell gorgeous though… like a sweet, smokey caramel scent!

What do you think of my recent purchases?
I hope you all have a lovely Sunday!

    Ooh such lovely purchases! I love the jacket/blouse, it’s so different but I love that it will pretty much go with anything, especially black jeans which will look perfect for this Autumn!

    Really like the embroidered jacket even though I find it a bit strange. Where I grew up those are traditional clothing – it is what people in the countryside wear to church on Sundays or on holidays. Even though I grew up in a city, some people still choose to wear them in honour of their ancestors and to celebrate their roots. I love the fact that are becoming available more and more, but like I said it is a bit strange that now they are a fashion statement item instead of holding on to their original values. However, this is not meant as a criticism so do not get me wrong. I would also wear it as it is super cute.

    The cactus thingy is also really nice and I am curious about the candle.

    Marshmallow Fireside sounds gorgeous for a candle! I can imagine being wrapped up on the sofa with homemade bakes whilst watching your favourite film with this burning in the background 🙂 xx

    Oooh I’ll have to check out the B&M candles! I love Bath and Body works, it’s so frustrating we can’t get them here! Danielle ||

    The cactus jewellery holder is so cute!

    That candle sounds niiiiiiiiice! And so affordable. Does it give off a strong scent?

    That blouse is just divine, I absolutely love all the detailing! x

    Love, love, love the cactus trinket dish! Cacti are amazing x

    I am an embroidery addict, that jacket/blouse (It would never be warm enough for a jacket where I live!) is gorgeous! I always forget about Matalan because there’s not one in town where I live anymore. If you like the idea of a marshmallow fire scent I do recommend Yankee Candle’s Fireside Treats, it is really good!

    Oo that top/jacket is so beautiful – and such a bargain too! I’m loving the little cactus trinket dish. And I’ll definitely have to get myself along to B&M to see which candles they have. I’ve been contemplating a Bath and Bodyworks order and then getting it shipped over, but if I can get a dupe over here for only £2.99 then that would be great!
